The author of Raising Lifelong Learners, Lucy McCormick Calkins, admired the way British classrooms are organized. Here’s an example. I should do the same at home except we’d need at least three of these modules. (February 12, 2007)

Domino’s Pizza just opened a new store near us. W00t! Their mushrooms are definitely much plumper. (December 29, 2006)

IMG 4497

The timer that reminds me to get my butt going. Stephen used to be so frightened of it that when I tried using it once, he was in such a hurry to get away that he smacked his face against the edge of the dining room table. Fortunately, he doesn’t bruise too easily. (December 28, 2006)

IMG 4495

Stephen and I playing with the dominos he received as a gift from the Leongs (thank you!). The rule was that no two dominos of the same color could touch each other. After I took this picture, I found three places where he didn’t follow directions. Can you find those spots? Hint: 2 sets of yellow adjoining each other. :P (December 27, 2006)

IMG 4345

Tagged by Angela at Breastfeeding 1-2-3 for a “come as you are” blog party. I usually have my hair clipped back while I work and since I haven’t moved my “office” table back to the guest room nor have I cleaned it off, the messy dining room table is as good as any. (December 14, 2006)

Stephen had his Christmas play yesterday! Only two mornings with the little monsters in his class and I had a massive headache and horrid malaise all the rest of the day. A teacher I’m not although I enjoyed getting to know the kids better. (December 13, 2006)
